We are glad to announce that we had our second client seminar on June 14th this year that focused on Hogan personality assessment tools. This time we had a really intriguing topic: dark side traits of the personality and its influence on leadership effectiveness, careers and relations. Our special guest clinical psychologist Piret Annus-Reinberg was invited to explain when and how “difficult character” turns into a personality disorder.
We looked at where the dark side traits in people come from and introduced the Hogan Development Survey (HDS) tool, which is one of the three personality assessments of Hogan Assessment Systems. Our consultants have been using it among other Hogan assessment tools in leadership development and selection since 2009.
The Hogan Development Survey (HDS) measures unproductive traits in a person that, in stressful situations, can inhibit leadership efficiency, damage work relationships, and hinder the achievement of goals. To date, more than 1000 Estonian executives and managers have completed the Hogan tests.
